The Michigan USDA Rural Development loan is a great loan option that allows home buyers to buy a home with no down payment and flexible mortgage terms. You may want to consider a RD Loan if you have had credit issues in the past and do not have money saved for a down payment. Beyond the down payment, RD loans have several other benefits including low mortgage insurance (PMI) in the form of a guarantee fee, low mortgage rates, and easier requirements than a conventional loan.
When buying a home if you do not have a 20% down payment, most loans require private mortgage insurance (PMI) which adds to your monthly payment. USDA loans are different because they have a guarantee fee in place of PMI. The current guarantee fee is 1.00% Up Front and .5% annually which is substantially less than the 1.75% Up front and .85% annually for FHA loans (Effective October 1st 2016). This allows for lower overall mortgage payments.
As mentioned previously, the USDA guarantees monthly mortgage payments to mortgage lenders for this loan type. That allows banks and mortgage lenders to offer very low mortgage rates compared to conventional loans. As, you may guess, the lower the interest rate, the lower the payment.
Lastly, qualifying for a USDA Rural Development Loan is easier than conventional financing. You may be able to eligible buy a home with only 2 years following a bankruptcy and only 3 years after a foreclosure. Conventional financing requires 4 years after bankruptcy and 7 years after a foreclosure.
